As leaders, we recognize that we must exercise spiritual discernment as we lead in our various spheres of influence. Our spiritual leadership at this time can mean the difference between good and bad governance of the people over which we have a pastoral responsibility.
Therefore, it is with humility and boldness that we rate these candidates based on our spiritual discernment and observations of the candidates resumes and their responses to the questions posted on the Gatekeepers website to the general public for its consideration.
